If I Forget Thee, O Jerusalem, ...

Band: Om/Six Organs Of Admittance
Album: Bedouin's Vigil/Assyrian Blood (split 7")
Origin: U.S.A.
Genre: Experimental, Drone, Stoner Rock, Doom
Year: 2006

This is a great split. It starts out with Bedouin's Vigil by Om. It's like their usual stuff, but instead of taking 20 minutes to do it, they put it in 4 minutes. Next up is Assyrian Blood by Six Organs Of Admittance. This is more like the fade-out to the record. Earth-style drones, weird noises, chanting and tearing guitar solos.
